The Single-Entry Secret

JM Tohline (JMToWin)

JM Tohline (Tuh-lean) – DFS alias JMToWin – is a novelist and a DFS player who specializes in high-stakes MLB and NFL tourneys, with a strategy geared toward single-entry play in multi-entry tourneys. He joined the DFS scene at the beginning of the 2014 MLB season, and has since won five DFS championship seats and two separate trips to the Bahamas. His tendency to type a lot of words leads to a corresponding tendency to divulge all his DFS thoughts, strategies, and secrets…which is exactly what he does in his RotoGrinders articles and RotoAcademy courses. You can find JM on Twitter at JMToWin.

Hopefully, this course will be a game changer.

I mean…I already know it will be a game changer for you. It will change the way you view DFS. It will remove from your DFS play many of the limitations that have been holding you back. I fully expect that within a few months of the publication of this course, I will be facing competition in high-dollar DFS tournaments that I have not seen there before – and some of this competition will have arrived in those high-dollar tournaments as a result of the things they learned in this course. Seriously.

But beyond just expecting that this course will be a game changer for you as a DFS player, I also hope this course is a game changer in the way the daily fantasy sports industry is viewed.

Let me take a trip down this side-trail I see. Give me just a sec…

Have you ever noticed that people who lose tend to lose consistently? Have you noticed that people who win tend to win consistently? I’m not just talking about DFS – I’m talking about…well, pretty much every area of life. One thing you will begin to notice as you pay attention to those who constantly enjoy success is that these individuals tend to thrive off problem-solving; if presented with a mystery to unravel on their path toward success, they will work tirelessly to crack this mystery open.

One thing you will begin to notice as you pay attention to those who constantly fail to enjoy success is that these individuals tend to make a lot of excuses. In DFS, these excuses manifest themselves in the following complaints:

1) DFS is a scam; only the house wins.

2) That guy just wins because he’s lucky.

3) You can only win in DFS if you have a big enough bankroll to buy up a ton of entries.

I can tell you from first-hand experience that DFS is not a scam. The house is not the only one that wins. There are plenty of players – myself included – who win consistently enough and big enough that they can rely on this money coming in.

If you are reading this, I imagine you are also intelligent enough to know that no one can win over the long run just from “being lucky.” The apparent manifestation of luck – in any situation – is the product of a small sample size. Over time, no one can be consistently profitable just from “being lucky.” And yet, there are many of us who are consistently profitable in DFS.

The way in which I hope this course will be a game changer for the DFS industry, however, is in dispelling that third myth – which is the myth I tend to see spouted most often by those who actually play DFS.

“You can only win if you can buy up all the entries.”

False.

Some of you may know me already, but for those of you who don’t, I hope you won’t mind if I take a moment to tell you a bit about myself. I do like long walks on the beach, but that’s not the type of “about myself” stuff I’m going to tell you; I want to tell you about myself as a DFS player. More accurately: I want to tell you about myself as a single-entry DFS player.

In the fall of 2015, I stated in one of my articles on RotoGrinders that I feel I am the best NFL DFS player in the country on an entry-by-entry basis. As you can probably imagine, I took a bit of heat for that statement – perhaps partially because I’m not typically a braggadocios character, but also perhaps partially because if someone were to look at my NFL rankings on RotoGrinders, I was not even ranked in the top 100 players in the country. How could I claim to be “the best NFL DFS player in the country on an entry-by-entry basis” when I was not even ranked in the top 100?

There’s a simple answer to that, though in order to reach that answer we have to pull back a couple layers and understand how RotoGrinders’ rankings work:

Rankings on RotoGrinders account for only the highest-finishing entry a DFSer enters into a tournament. If someone enters 100 teams and I enter one, that opponent of mine has 100 chances to finish higher than me in the tournament (and therefore has 100 chances to pick up more points toward their RotoGrinders ranking). And of course, most DFSers do toss a lot of entries into the tournaments they play.

When I play DFS, however, I almost always roll with a single lineup – giving me far fewer opportunities than others to add to my ranking score. Upon recognizing this, the fact that I finished that 2015 NFL season ranked 140 out of over 27,000 DFSers begins to paint the picture of exactly why I felt comfortable making that statement.

Moreover (and far more pertinent to the topic we are discussing!), that “top 150 ranking” in NFL begins to illustrate the point I am making:

It is wholly and entirely possible to succeed in DFS at a high level without ever mass-entering a tourney!

How does one go about doing this?

Well…duh. That’s what we are going to talk about.

In this course, I am going to explore my single-entry approach. I am going to tell you why this is the best approach for me. I am going to show you how I use this approach to be profitable while going up against competition that is putting in a massive number of entries in most contests.

In this course, I am going to show you that you do not need to be able to “buy up all the entries” in order to compete at the highest level of DFS. In fact, you do not have to buy more than one entry in any tournament.

I am also going to show you how this “single-entry approach” can be used to maximize your profits as a multi-entry player. If “multi-entry” is your thing, there are a lot of elements in this single-entry approach that you can incorporate into your own play in order to take your profits to the next level.

This course is going to change the way you view DFS.

Hopefully, this course will also help to shift the way the daily fantasy sports industry itself is viewed.

After all, you don’t need to play multiple entries in order to dominate DFS.

Here – let me show you.
